Fans of online slots will be able to combine their love of online games with their social network page as PopCap Games becomes the latest games provider to launch a social gaming experience via social networking giant Facebook.
Lucky Gem Casino is a free to play slot based casino that boasts games featuring characters from hits such as Bejeweled, Bookworm and Zuma. In all seven games custom made by the world leading games developer PopCap will initially be available, with additions and updates expected to happen in the near future. All the games are free to play, although players can purchase virtual currency in the form of Facebook credits to accelerate and increase the fun. All payouts are in virtual coins, which are not redeemable or transferrable for cash.
Millions of players across the world have already been enjoying PopCaps’s existing social games, with titles including Bejeweled Blitz, Zuma Blitz and most recently, Solitaire Blitz attracting huge numbers of fans. With some of the highest engagement rates in the industry, PopCap is certainly hoping that Lucky Gem Casino proves to be just as popular.
Dennis Ryan, vice president of worldwide publishing at PopCap said: "The strength of PopCap's game brands and the quality of the Lucky Gem product combined with our experience in luck-based games outside of Facebook means we are perfectly positioned to deliver the ultimate online free casino game experience -- PopCap style.”
Lucky Gem Casino allows Facebook users to play alone or with friends. Players can compare their winnings, chat in real-time with friends, play mini-games and share unique game content.
